beaches, maryland beaches, along the delmarva, inside the washington, d.c., area, like the marine corps marathon, expect rain and wind. sunday, not too bad of a day, just rainy conditions. but then on monday, high impact from washington right on through baltimore, philadelphia, up through new york, even if this comes up and hits philadelphia or atlantic city directly, we still get strong winds, and we still get very heavy rain. this is what we're going to be watching for, strong winds, lots of trees down potentially, heavy rain and power outages. there could be millions without power from washington up through the boston area. this is going to be a high impact storm just because it's hitting the northeast. maybe not the strongest storm as far as hurricanes go, but a strong storm nonetheless. live web chat going on right now. questions about sandy, go to nbcwashington.com, click on our web chat. veronica johnson and i will be answering questions throughout the afternoon. how about our weather now, nice afternoon. partly cloudy. nice and mild.
